COVID Card #115

August 28, 2020 | 0 comments

Have you ever heard of a nasty little division of the Treasury Department known as “The Section”? I didn’t think so. Lucky for all of us, it ceased to exist in 1943. Or did it….

Just kidding (it did shut down in 1943 when its leader and creator, Edward Bruce, died). “The Section” was a sort of nickname for The Section of Fine Art. This, not the WPA, was the government group that led the Post Office Murals project in the 1930s and 1940s. Ah, government-funded art. More trappings of a dirty little utopia.

The United States Postal Service has been hit hard by the pandemic. Controlling elements of the Federal Government (the president and Republican Senate) do not want to provide aid to the service. So, it’s up to us. It may seem insignificant, but if we all sent just a few letters a week, we could help ensure that our daily, free mail delivery service continues. For the past (see the card number above) days, I have drawn a card each day and mailed it to someone the next day (none are sent on Sundays; two are sent on Mondays). Please consider mailing cards and letters while we still can for 55 cents (first class letter postage). If the USPS fails, you could find it costs $8 or more to send a letter. And that’s just one of the ways we will all lose if the USPS shuts down.
